Bike Check: Sam Hulse’s GT BK Globetrotter

Newest part on my bike: BK 2018 frame
Oldest part on my bike: Wethepeople forks, they are only a few months old, but I did love the Helium forks till they were discontinued and I broke my last set…
How often do I get a new set-up: I try to keep my parts until they give up on me and I’m forced to change them, I don’t change my set-up too often, but do try to keep up with the times.
How good am I at keeping my bike dialled: I have never been the best at keeping my bike running smooth, but I think most street riders would agree we put our bike through a bit more of a beating than park and trails riders do…
